    You might want to have a shop you trust do a visual inspection. Brakes do have a nasty habit of wearing out.Don't wait to long , especially if you haul kids!

    Firstly i will ask what are your normal driving habits work? recreation? or other driving norms? Remember the more you drive and how you drive (city vs highway) pretty much dictate how often you should get a brake inspection along with the manufacturers recommendations. At this point you do need the brakes checked or just get the vehicle up in the air, and do get an estimate for future work that may be needed,. Does the vehicle have any warranty? (some national and local shops will inspect your vehicle for" FREE", it is a two sided coin you get to find out whats going on and they stand a chance to gain a new customer. I hope that you did have someone to inspect the vehicle before your purchase it???. Now Its time for you to start the preventive maintence program, some vehicle history never hurts, the small owners manual or check dealership for maintence schedule, I am assuming that you do wish to keep this vehicle for at least a little while?? Your Braking system is safety for you and others. How many miles are on the vehicle???
